      Isn't there a general "rule" that you do not tow a car with automatic transmission as the oil pumps in the box are driven by the input shaft? That would make sense to me. I shift to neutral quite...

      Quite often it is the final axis that is stuck. You need to replace the whole assembly. Happened to me and I did it :)

      But let's hope it is a fuse!

      Doesn't it? It uses the steering wheel angle to change the lane filtering in bends, i.e. look more to the right or the left when the wheel is slightly off center. It would make sense if it needed a...
